Comment:
I am also taking Aromasin for post breast cancer care. Like a lot of others, the side effects have included joint pain. For someone who plays piano and golf, the pain in my hands was miserable. However, I started taking kelp to help offset some of these symptoms, and it has helped immensely. In fact, any residual pain can be relieved with Advil. Hope this tidbit helps someone.

Comment:

I limp, my hands are like claws in the morning when I wake up and I had some breathing problems from time to time. I have hot flashes (not really too bad there) and I am feeling tired much of the time and brain fog is really bad as well. M ... Show Full Comment
